I am sorry as a current judge, I cannot correspond to messages or posts. Please forgive me and I am not trying to be rude. I am following regulations. If you would like a constructive criticism or applause after the judging I will offer my 2 cents. I might be able to help by offering advice or techniques to help you win the next one if you didn't win. I can not help you during competitions though. Not sure how long I will be judging. But I have heard several I could help put them over the top. Just send me a message after the competition is done. I am blown away by some of the awesome talent out there!
I sing everyday to eleviate symptoms of COPD and promote lung health.
I am an artist. lyricist, singer, poet, photographer, model, accountant/administrator, and I guess I stay busy. But like to sing. I was accepted to Julliard for my vocals but didn't get to go. I was headed to med school. Didn't go there either and chose a business administration career instead. I just enjoy life and what it throws my way . I was handpicked by the top blues coach in the country and trained when I was 17 but never pursued a career in singing. . You can view my artwork on Facebook under Rebecca Lambour Rudolph. I am single and divorced..not that matters..lol
Since a tiny tot, I grew up listening to my cousin Tommy Boyd who plays for talent such as Ricky Skaggs and other country and blue grass stars and the rest of the crew while sitting around a pot belly stove and clapping and singing on my Great grandfathers lap in the foot hills of Ohio very close to Kentucky. We had several talented musicians in the family and my whole family played instruments as well as sang. I played trumpet, coronet, drums, and french horn and a tad bit of acoustic guitar..many moons ago..lol.

Tips for vocalists:
Avoid caffeine..It produces mucus
Stick your tongue to your chin prior to singing the first note. It opens the passage way for a crisp clean first note.
Exercise the muscles in your face prior to singing just as if you were doing a sport.
Practice scales daily....it helps you hit all your notes on key.
Project from the diaphragm when you sing.
Read the lyrics and get your mind into the song. Put your heart and soul into the story. Ignore the rest of the world and worried about who might be listening or watching and isolate yourself mentally.
Study yourself and what might be a feature with your voice that sets you apart from the rest and use it, but sparingly. Meant to highlight not control.
Use shorter songs when sending demo's. Songs that are too long bore people.
Never set your recording levels to high when sending demo's. Seek advice from a professional.
